Soldier of Fortune is a violent game, and not for the faint-hearted. Wusses and wimps need not apply.

Assuming the role of John Mullins, your challenge within the game is to ultimately destroy a terrorist organisation and survive the ordeal. You must use your stealth abilities and talents as a sharpshooter to maintain your position as a hunter. Become the hunted, and your game will be short-lived.

As a first-person shooter, Soldier of Fortune is not the easiest game to control on the Dreamcast, but given a little time it will become second nature. The game will see you wandering through a more than adequate 26 levels, spread across 10 missions and 5 continents, and including locations such as an Iraqi oil factory and a Russian chemical plant. Inevitably, unpleasant sorts of death play a huge part in this graphic gaming experience. The characters are so well modelled in fact, that when a limb is shot at, it may well fall off at the point of impact, or when putting a bullet in the head, it splatters in a dramatic fashion. Weaponry includes some of the most lethal creations, such as phosphorous grenades and microwave pulse guns.

Soldier of Fortune is certainly aimed towards a more mature audience, and quite rightly so. It’s gruesome, it gory, and it’s one hell of a great game.
